ESET has been recognised in the KuppingerCole Market Compass 2020 report for its Endpoint Protection, Detection and Response solutions, including its Endpoint Security and ESET Enterprise Inspector, giving particular merit for its universal coverage.
ESET achieved high scores across all categories, achieving the third highest number of strong positives out of a total 17 vendors, with top scores in six out of nine criteria and the rest being evaluated as positive. KuppingerCole assesses vendor solutions on nine key criteria – Security, Interoperability, Usability, Deployment, Malware Protection, Threat Hunting, Automated Responses, Secondary EPP and Common Functions – with strong positive as the highest possible rating.
In addition to broad support for a variety of operating systems, KuppingerCole cites ESET’s technical capability of being able to scan the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) as a core strength. ESET is further commended for its complete suite of detection and protection techniques, and excellent implementation of multiple, advanced ML algorithms for discovering malicious activity patterns. As one of the very few vendors on the market, ESET leverages Windows AMSI, and provides a Script Scanner, Advanced Memory Scanner and Ransomware Shield. The report also highlights ESET’s contribution to mapping the MITRE ATT&CK framework in order to facilitate analysis of malicious actors. KuppingerCole also commend ESET Enterprise Inspector’s support of interactive live querying and memory analysis with automated response options like network isolation of suspect nodes, process termination, moving/deleting files and running scripts.
Ignacio Sbampato, chief business officer at ESET, said, “The digital threat landscape is constantly evolving and adapting, and it is vital that organisations and their systems are adequately protected. Reports such as the KuppingerCole Market Compass are vital in holding us accountable to the high standards we set for our solutions, and our dedication to keeping enterprises and their data safe and secure around the world.”
